However in that continuum there is the phenomenon of arising and vanishing. One of the six Vedana; is arising either on the eye, ear, cittankpassana, tongue, body or mind. Having no nose-rope, the steer will either try to run off the road, or break loose by breaking the yoke. Arahat Kotthika, although he himself was an Arahat, put these questions to Maha Sariputta for the benefit of the younger monks.

Chapter 4 – The Four Foundations Of Mindfulness

The true knowledge of the Khandhas which have the characteristics of such appearing and dissolution is called Yathabhuta Nana. In other words, there takes place Tanha followed up by Upadana and again followed by Kammabhava, this completes the three factors of Tanha, Upadana and Kammabhava.

Hence emphasis on Cittanupassana. This is how, and from where the idea of personality, I or Ego or Mine or Me comes in. They are vedznanupassana follows: Cittanupassna is not a single moment that is free from vedana, so the Yogi must try to cognise, comprehend the arising and perishing of the Khandhas of which Vedana is one.

Element of cohesion vedananupzssana Element of motion and 4. Some even believe that the soul does not depart the body as long as there is no vacancy to dwell in just like the larva of a mosquito which still hangs on to the imago or cover. Intending Yogis are advised that in order to practise Vipassana effectively they are at first required to be fully conversant with the fundamentals, firstly Nama Rupa; secondly the doctrine of the Paticcasamuppada.

In conclusion, it must be emphasised again that there is no other salvation except Vipassana meditation which can rescue the worldling from the damnation of Apayagati woeful abode. Being not satisfied with the answer, he went again and asked another man about it. In the first instance, craving for eating arises and it vanishes leaving ‘paccaya’ cause for Upadana to arise, so it must be noted that Upadana can only arise because paccaya cause functions as a connecting link between Tanha and Upadana.


The Four Foundations Of Mindfulness [Chapter 4]

Cittanupaszana is said, ‘ Phassa paccaya Vedana’ because of Phassa, there arises Vedana. The second Arahat answered that in order that a monk might be able to see and realise Nibbana he should try to perceive and comprehend the arising ane perishing of Pancakkhandha five aggregates or components as they really are. When Kammabhava arises it is bound to be followed by Jati. Such beliefs as transmigration of the soul of reincarnation from one existence to another vedanajupassana Ditthi and nothing else.

Sukkha, Dukkha and Upekkha Vedanas arise and perish alternately. There is no seer, hearer or any doer. Again there arises the desire or craving Tanha to eat which is vedananupasxana by the overwhelming desire or clinging to eating which clinging is again followed by Kaya Kamma, deeds vdeananupassana Vacci Kamma, words, i. The Buddha said that when Sukha Vedana is followed by Tanha, the realisation of Nibbana can never be attained; similarly, when Dukkha Vedana is followed by Dosa and Domanasa, the realisation of Nibbana can never be attained.

With the attainment of these three stages of Nana he becomes a Mahasotappana. What is essential at this stage is to comprehend only the arising and perishing of the khandha. This is very important for the Yogis to remember because most of the Yogis indulge themselves in Anapana, with the wrong notion that it is ‘I’ who is breathing in and breathing out.

This is how the revolution of Paticcasamuppada starts from the middle. That is the reason why the late Maha Thera Mogok Vedananuapssana with great compassion repeatedly exhorted Yogis to meditate upon the arising and perishing of the Khandhas. Attachment will vedxnanupassana arise when the meditator rightly understands the true nature of good mental states or a good experience.

If he does not observe these experiences mindfully, he will like them and may desire more of them. Vipassana is often translated as ‘special insight’. The more escapes there are from the mental nothing the longer will be the duration to exterminate Ditthi. The mind begins to realise that the experience has disappeared.


Unpleasant sensation or unpleasant feeling is called dukkha vedana in Pali dukkha here means unpleasant. Here Yonisomanasikara right attitude means right attitude to wards the right knowledge that Rupa is Rupa corporeality and not ‘I’ or ‘me’, Vedana is Vedana feeling and not ‘I’ or ‘me’; Sanna Sankhara are Sanna and Sankhara and not ‘I’or ‘me’; in other words Yonisomanasikara means seeing things as they really are by way of Paramattha Dhamma ultimate reality.

Therefore the Buddha said the root cause cittamupassana falling into Abd must be exterminated and uprooted. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. The Buddha said that the root cause of falling into Apayagati woeful and miserable plane of existence must be exterminated and uprooted.

It is said that a person who practice samatha and vipassana calm and insight without first coming to kayagata-satipatthana mindfulness as regards the bodyresembles the owner who yokes the still untamed bullock a young male cow to the cart or plough without the nose-rope.

According to Mahayana, any analytical meditation belongs to the class of vipassana. It means when the Yogi responds to Sukha Vedana with tanha or Dukkha An with Dosa or Domanassathe process of Paticcasamuppada will take its usual course ad infinitum.

Anicca can never be realised in the strict sense by merely reciting Anicca, Anicca. Element of heat and cold.

Whenever one points his finger there is the sky. Generally at this point, the Yogi clearly sees with insight that whatever consciousness arises be it Lobha, Dosa, Moha or Cittanupassxna or Alobha, it terminates itself in vanishing or passing away.
